Defending Champ Froome Crashes Out Of Tour


Chris Froome should have just been called "Schleprock" for everything that went down in the last two stages of the Tour de France. He crashed in the sunshine in Stage 4 and crashed himself out of the race this year with two wrecks in Stage 5.

NBCSN recaps his quick tour of the Tour...

Today's Stage 5 was the first time in ten years or so that the race got the cobblestone streets in muddy conditions that resemble the Paris-Roubaix section from older times. Cobblestones are one thing, but the muddy, slippery cobbles are an entirely different animal entirely.

But to have it happen this early is huge...

The favorite for the remainder of the race is anyone's guess...
